Thank you to all who came to the show.

It was good to see friends, old and new, that we haven't seen for awhile and some we have seen in the last week !
It has been a great re-start after the past two years of no shows and of course in that time Jim never stopped painting...so you can imagine what our house looks like !
We hope everyone who purchased paintings will have many years of enjoyment and pleasure from having them in your homes.
take care, Jim and Lorraine

This painting measuring 24 x 30 inches is completed in oil and titled 'Helen McKenzie Lake'.

The painting is more inspired by the lake than the painting actually follows.  There should be a more prominent back

ground hill to be correct.  Helen Mckenzie lies in Strathcona Park, Central Vancouver Island and is a popular

destination for day hikers or a great rest stop before continuing onto the backcountry.  We ourselves have stopped here many times

over the years on our hiking adventures.

This painting is available for purchase at $475.     Thank you for stopping by, JJ

New acrylic painting, measuring 18 x 36 inches.  Titled 'Deering Bridge Rail Trestle'.

This was painted from one of our photos of the old railroad trestle which spans a side channel

beside the Deering bridge that crosses  the San Juan river, just North of Port Renfrew.

Available for purchase at $480.      Thank you, JJ.
